Back-up camera on 2017 melbourne 24k

We're looking for a replacement camera for our 2017 Melbourne 24K. It's harder than we thought it would be. There is nothing in any of our literature that tells us what the brand was. It ties into our Pioneer system. Any suggestions?

Pioneer camera shows up on Amazon and other places when you Google it.

Any camera should work. They just plug in to the stereo with RCA plugs.

What is going in with the camera, the clarity? Asking since mine is so blurry and I can’t imagine this is the norm. Crazy thing is for one weekend last year all of the sudden it was crystal clear - then back to blur. Must be a loose wire, interference or something.

Good luck. After my slide topper installation I pulled mine off to see if I could adjust the angle or replace. There was barely enough slack to get a finger behind it. I tugged a little to see if it might be caught on something but gave up. I think it is different than my Sprinters center brake/ back up camera but there is roughly a 3/4-1" hole that it mounted over so if you have enough wire any combo brake light back up camera or camera that would cover that hole should work.

The camera picture on the monitor started flipping like the old TVs used to do. Then after about 5 minutes it would go blank. It did this everytime we'd turn the engine off for gas. Then the last time we started the engine and took off, it was black and has been ever since. It might have been due to being bumped when they put on the slide toppers or maybe a screw nicked one of the wires. Talk about an awesome dealer, the ones who put on our toppers said that if we found it to be their fault, they'd pay for a new camera and installation (since we're 1300 miles from them and had already gone about 300 miles that day before it started acting up). We're pretty sure it was just coincidental. We've actually found the exact camera after much research, but we're wondering if we might just replace it with a wireless. The jury is still out.

Wireless might be nice below the topper. Let us know which way you go.
